|Electrophoretic behaviour and quantitative analysis of active components 6,7-dehydroroyleanone and taxoquinone extracted from Salvia deserta Schang[Reference: WebLink]|
|This communication demonstrates that micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC) can be convenient for the determination of minor active components 6,7-dehydro-royleanone and Taxoquinone in the extract of the traditional Chinese medicinal herb. 6,7-Dehydroroyleanone and Taxoquinone can be monitored selectively and sensitively at 254 nm within 8 min in the plant extract, using alfa-cyclodextrin (alfa-CD) as a MEKC modified. The concentration range was 5-500 ug ml-1 for 6,7-dehydroroyleanone and 2.5-750 ug ml-1 for Taxoquinone with good linear correlation coefficients 0.9997 and 0.9989, respectively. It was found that 68.2 ug of 6,7-dehydroroyleanone and 12.5 ug of Taxoquinone were contained in 1 g of Salvia deserta Schang roots. The inclusion of 6,7-dehydroroyleanone and Taxoquinone with alfa-CD in capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) was studied, and the inclusion constant logKCD were 4.1 and 3.2 for 6,7-dehydroroyleanone and Taxoquinone, respectively.|

|Antioxidant and free radical scavenging activities of taxoquinone, a diterpenoid isolated from Metasequoia glyptostroboides[Reference: WebLink]|
|An abietane type diterpenoid Taxoquinone, isolated from ethyl acetate cone extract of Metasequoia glyptostroboides, was analyzed for its antioxidant efficacy as reducing power ability and its ability to scavenge free radicals such as 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH), nitric oxide, superoxide and hydroxyl radicals. As a result, Taxoquinone showed significant and concentration-dependent antioxidant and free radical scavenging activities of DPPH, nitric oxide, superoxide and hydroxyl free radicals by 78.83%, 72.42%, 72.99% and 85.04%, as compared to standard compounds ascorbic acid (81.69%, 74.62%, 73% and 73.79%) and α-tocopherol/butylated hydroxyanisole (84.09%, 78.61%, 74.45% and 70.02%), respectively. These findings justify the biological and traditional uses of M. glyptostroboides or its secondary metabolite Taxoquinone as confirmed by its promising antioxidant and free radical scavenging activities.|

|Antimycotic potential of a diterpenoid taxoquinone against Candida species isolated from Metasequoia glyptostroboides[Reference: WebLink]|
|The objective of this study was to confirm the antimycotic potential of a diterpenoid compound Taxoquinone, isolated from Metasequoia glyptostroboides against pathogenic isolates of Candida species. The Taxoquinone (100 μg/disc) displayed potential anticandidal effect against Candia albicans KBN06P00076, KBN06P00074, C. glabrata KBN06P00066, KBN06P00068, C. tropicalis KBN06P00682, KBN06P00058, C. parapsilosis KBN06P00060, KBN06P00055, and C. guilliermondii KBN06P00492 and KBN06P00867 as a diameter of zones of inhibition, found in the range of 10 ± 0.6 to 13 ± 1.1 mm. The minimum inhibitory and minimum fungicidal concentrations of Taxoquinone against the tested clinical isolates were found in the range of 125 to 500 and 125 to 1,000 μg/mL, respectively. On the viable counts of the tested fungal isolates, the Taxoquinone evoked a remarkable anticandidal effect. Elaborative study of SEM revealed potential detrimental effect of Taxoquinone on the morphology of C. parapsilosis KBN06P00060 at MIC concentration. These findings confirmed therapeutic potential of Taxoquinone|
